About Luigi Torriti

Talking about oneself is never easy, but certainly the love for our property leads us to do everything with great passion and dedication.

We have been having excellent relationships with many of our clients and friendship with some of them has became particularly beautiful and strong. Just as they have became part of our lives, we have became part of theirs. There have been many occasions to travel togheter or get a plane to cross the ocean just to celebrate a birthday.

So many unforgettable moments and great memories: even a restaurant in Oregon named " Nicoletta" , the name of my mother.

Luigi Torriti purchased this villa in 1900

Why Luigi Torriti chose Cortona

Villa Mulino a Vento is really unique: although it is located near the center of Cortona, it gives the chance to live in direct contact with nature. Peacefulness, a breathtaking view onto the valley, ease and relaxation leave always good memories of the days spent here and it is just as much of a pleasure for us to see how happy our clients are.

Wonderful Villa

  • 5 of 5

Mulino a Vento sits above Cortona with a magnificent vista over the val di chiana. The ancient house has been restored and equiped to comfortably house 3 couples. The pool is extra nice . Walk into town is doable, especially going down into town, and provides some exercise coming back.

The owners and their son Luigi are very helpful. One of our party became ill and they arranged to have a doctor come to the house on short notice. Luigi accompanied me to the pharmacy to get prescription drug.

This is a special place.

Mulino a Vento is a FABULOUS 15th Century Tuscan home located in the hills of Cortona (updated with modern conveniences while maintaining old world charm)...yet only a few minute walk to the Village. The VIEW is spectacular! Staying there was the BEST part of visiting Italy, experiencing the Tuscan culture and enjoying the incredible local foods. Mulino a Vento is very spacious, private & IMMACULATE and the owner is readily available to assist with any requests, including recommending Chef (Ivan and helper, Francesco) who prepared the most incredible 5 course feast for us one evening! The pool is also an exceptional feature which provides a cool relief after a day of touring Tuscany or a busy day of visiting local shops in the village. Avignonesi Winery is only a short distance away (10 minutes via taxi service) and should not be missed. It's an organic vineyard with exquisite wines...but, be sure to sign up for their 4 course gourmet lunch which you'll find nothing short of superb! I can't possibly include everything into this short review....but will summarize by stating that if you truly want to enjoy Tuscany in the BEST and most beautiful home with the most helpful and accommodating owner, Mulino a Vento is the BEST place to stay!

Delightful Tuscan Villa in Cortona

  • 5 of 5

We spent two lovely weeks here in this fabulous villa in Cortona. We were met on our arrival by Nicoletta, Guiseppe and Luigi who accompanied us to Mulino a Vento and showed us round the lovely house. It is tastefully decorated and in great condition throughout and has everything you need for a stay here. There are three lovely spacious bedrooms - two ensuite and one with its own (but separate) bathroom. My 9 year old daughter was amazed that she had a room with a dressing room and an ensuite bathroom! The Wi-Fi worked well which kept the children entertained when they weren’t jumping in and out of the lovely swimming pool. The grounds were lovely and Luigi keeps them very well maintained. The views from the property were very special indeed. We never got tired of looking at the view both during the day and at night with the lights twinkling in the valley below. We were star gazing most evenings as being at the top of the town, there is very little light pollution which allowed a good view – seeing the Milky Way and shooting stars!

It is an easy 10 minute stroll into Cortona town centre which is full of cafes, restaurants, shops and piazzas to sit in with a coffee or drink and watch the World go by. We were lucky enough to be here at festival time and Nicoletta made sure we had a programme and recommended a couple of events that were happening that we and the children might like. We introduced the kids to some culture with the Tuscany orchestra, a Serbian violinist, a David Bowie tribute and thoroughly enjoyed some Michelin starred street food!

Make sure to walk up to the Basilica di Santa Margharita and the Medici fortress at the very top of Cortona. It is a climb, but very well worth it. Cortona is a great place for day trips to places like Montepulciano, Pienza, Arezzo, Siena and Lake Trasimeno.

This was our first ever visit to Tuscany, but it certainly won’t be our last and we very much hope to come back and stay at Mulino a Vento again.

The highlight of our trip!!

  • 5 of 5

We spent two weeks in Mulino a Vento and it was the highlight of our six weeks holiday in Europe. Everything was perfect for our group of six adults and we were very happy.

Nicoletta, Beppe and Luigi were always helpful and generous with their time and advice and they made us feel very welcome. We were greeted with a bottle of wine & chocolates on our first night!!

The villa is perched high on the hill of Cortona, overlooking the valley and during the day you can see Lake Trasimeno and many small towns. Each night the lights in the valley sparkle in the darkness. The view is beautiful and we never tired of looking.

Everything in the villa was extremely comfortable and soon became like our home away from home. It was only a ten minute walk into the centre of town where there are lots of restaurants, shops and lovely piazza's where you can sit or wander.

We did quite a few easy day trips - Montalcino, Pienza, Montepulciano, the Chianti, Florence, Assisi and Arezzo to name just some.

We would all return to Mulino a Vento and Cortona in a heartbeat if we ever have the chance!!

Cortona at its finest!

  • 5 of 5

This is a tranquil, beautiful property within easy walking distance of Cortona city center. Everything about the property is perfect and it is in close proximity to many wonderful sights. Cortona itself is as charming as are the villa owners. This was a perfect Italy experience!

Spectacular views, wonderful stay

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely vacation in this beautiful location, high in the hills of Cortona, near Lake Trasimeno, thanks to Nicoletta, Beppe, and Luigi. The home we stayed in was decorated in a charming and rustic manner with modern conveniences, and could not have been better located or more functional. The family could not have been more welcoming or generous to us during our week stay. Upon our arrival we were greeted with a bottle of local wine, chocolates, and plump, ripe strawberries. Rainy and cool weather prevented us from taking advantage of the beautiful grounds and built-in swimming pool, and unfortunately we were not able to make use of the stone patios and balconies, or outdoor furniture for meals or drinks. It was this weather, however, that made us all the more appreciative of the modern kitchen, the television with cable, and wireless internet connectivity. We were able to walk into town for delicious dinners and interesting shops, and the family was quick to recommend local restaurants and a private chef should we have desired one.

It is very convenient to access the Autostrada from this location. This property is well situated for day trips to Montepulciano, Montalcino, Siena, Florence, and Orvieta, to name but a few. We very much hope to return in the future. Thank you to the Torriti family for making our stay so memorable.
